Who wants to read yesterday’s news, anyway?

It was beautiful to watch, but today’s a new day, Obama says bin Laden’s dead, and I’ve got work to do.

    OMG!

    Aren’t you technically a subject of the Queen?

    Will and Kate seem nice and those Navy Seals are the best, but you know me – what’s in that can? ;-)

    There’s something comforting about how fast it’s become old news.

      True, but the rumour mill couldn’t have cranked out better conspiracy fuel than the bin Laden killing. Oh, hey, let’s not produce a body, let’s say we have DNA – but what’s to compare to it? and on and on… I’m sure he’s dead, but couldn’t they at least make sure those things were also taken care of?

    I did chuckle at your phrasing: Obama says Bin Laden is dead. I did catch a piece – believe it was Reuters – where they analyzed one of the first photos to hit the web, showed it was false and then added the comment that too much delay would put even legit photos in question. After all, the birth certificate’s been photoshopped, don’t you know? ;-)

      The operations was beamed live to the White House as it was happening. Now wouldn’t that be your ultimate viral video – and help dispel any rumours of bin Laden one day turning up in Kalamazoo?

    Here’s a very efficient paper, although I question who received top billing:

    You could have saved even more time and a tree to boot!
